Steven Pienaar heading to Tottenham as Everton accept improved offer

Steven Pienaar
Everton have accepted a bid from Tottenham for want-away midfielder Steven Pienaar.

It come just hours after the Toffees said they would not allow the South African’s representatives to talk to Spurs as their bid of £2million plus £1m based on performances had fallen short of Chelsea’s offer of £3 million up front.

But Spurs soon matched the Blues’ bid, and with the 28-year-old having already agreed terms with the Lilywhites he appears to be heading for White Hart Lane.

Pienaar is contracted to Everton until the end of the season, and the Toffees have decided cash in on the player rather than allow him to walk away for nothing in the summer.

He was left out of Sunday’s Merseyside derby, telling Everton coach David Moyes that he wasn’t in the right frame of mind to play.
